Tom Parton Named in U20 squad

05th January 2018

Full Back Tom Parton, who is currently with the Scots from Aviva Premiership side London Irish has been named in the England U20 side for the second year in a row.

The electric outside back was part of the England Under 20 side that made it all the way to the final of the Junior World Cup last summer in Georgia.

Parton was one of the stand out performers for the England side last season and also helped them to the Six Nations Championship, something Parton will be hoping to replicate this year.

Parton made his London Scottish debut a few weeks ago in the British and Irish Cup against Jersey Reds at fly half but has been playing in his more familiar and favoured position of full back over the last few weeks.

Parton has certainly made his mark already for Scottish scoring a scintillating try against Jersey at home and scoring against Nottingham just before the New Year.

England U20 begin their defence of their 6 Nations Grand Slam against Italy on 2 February. Read more about Tom’s inclusion in the squad here
